And the Tastiest Tweet Goes to…

What a gastronomical group you are, ModLovers! Our Tasty Tweets contest with CHOW found a flood of fantastic ‘Twe-cipes’ in our Twitter stream. From savory-sounding spins on pesto to simply scrumptious lettuce wraps, there was no shortage of resourcefulness, creativity, or culinary cuteness (shout out to @hello_im_lauren ‘s “Pickle Dudes”!) in your top snack concoctions. So, what did we do? We chose our fave three recipes, whipped ’em up, and went to CHOW‘s offices for a taste-testing extravaganza!

CHOW also chose and made their top three recipes, so our plates were soon filled with savory, sweet, and supremely satisfying snacks. Post-nosh, the debate was intense as we considered each marvelous morsel’s merits. The winner was chosen for its super simple preparation, adherence to the rules, and overall deliciousness. So, who is the winner of a $100 ModCloth gift certificate and a sweet gift bag of kitchen-ready swag?

@Abbergail's winning dish!

@Abbergail! Here’s the yummy snack that won our hearts: “dried apricots topped with chopped, roasted, salted almonds, served on slivers of salty parmesan cheese.”

Runner-up @Brennaface's yummy dish!

But, that’s not all! Our runner-up’s recipe tickled our taste buds so much that we just had to show @Brennaface some love with a $50 ModCloth gift certificate! Her tasty treat? Two slices of whole wheat bread, spread with spicy peach chutney and goat cheese, then topped with arugula and smoked turkey. So good!

If those rad recipes don’t have your tummy rumblin’, then maybe our honorable (and delicious) mentions will:

  • @misspenny_: “Peel and slice a jicama, dip slices in lime juice and then sprinkle with chili powder.”
  • @Jiza316: “BLT bites: cooked/crumbled bacon, 1/2cup mayo, 1/3cup green onion, 3tbsp parm cheese. Mix. Spoon into pitted cherry toms.”
  • @knitmetogether: “Cube watermelon and top with freshly crushed mint and crumbled feta for a quick, refreshing salad.”

Thank you to all the chic chefs, aspiring Food Network stars, and cute cooks for sending in your best culinary concoctions. And now, with all these Tasty Tweets to try out, we’re gonna go whip up a wonderful snack!
